Hi Alex,

No problem.

Once you have converted your database to MySQL then you will need to connect the website to it. This can be done in a number of ways, but probably the most common is to use PHP on the server. The advantage of PHP over other connectivity technologies is that it is pretty much platform independent - so you can develop on one platform and deploy the production site on another. It is also easy to migrate from say a Microsoft based server to Linux. I guess at the end of the day it's down to what you feel comfortable with, but I'd go for PHP every time.

There are lots of books on the subject - 'PHP and MySQL Web Development' - ISBN 0-672-32525-X for example.

You can also use something like Dreamweaver to generate the php code for you but, if you really want to get a feel for any programming language, then there's no substitute for learning how to write the code yourself.

Let us know how you get on.
